Taming Light and Electrons with Metamaterials
11 Jul 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Nader Engheta
In recent years, in my group we have been working on various aspects of metamaterials and plasmonic nano-optics. We have introduced and been developing the concept of "metatronics", i.e. metamaterial-inspired optical nanocircuitry, in which the three fields of "electronics", "photonics" and …
Putting the Electron’s Spin to Work
14 Apr 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Daniel Ralph
I will discuss recent progress in experimental techniques to control the orientations of nanoscale magnetic moments and electron spins, and to use these new means of control for applications. One powerful new capability arises from the fact that thin magnetic layers can act as filters for spins.
